Free Art Fridays in South Florida

Imagine you’re taking a walk in town on a Friday afternoon and you notice something odd. You see a painting leaning up against a lamp or a small sculpture sitting in a bush. Upon closer inspection you find a little tag that says “Free Art Fridays” That is something that is happening all over Miami-Dade and Broward counties and it’s called Free Art Fridays. The way it works is that local artists create a painting and just leave it out somewhere in public and the first person to find it is free to take it.

This trend was originally started in the UK a few years ago but it has spread across the world and has taken South Florida by storm. Artists do it as a way to promote their work while collectors enjoy the free art. It is a movement that has been made possible through social media. Often artists will post hints of what they’re going to be giving away and where they’re going to leave it. At least in South Florida the competition gets pretty intense among art collectors. They’re constantly checking the social media profiles of their favorite local artists and in some cases even following them to the place where they’re going to place their art. Ultimately though it is a fun new twist on something as old as art and an unexpected perk of living in the Miami area.


There are few things Americans love more than free stuff.
